Can we start a thread, maybe even sticky it, for snow reports, good deals, carpool options and who's going riding when and where? I have a season pass and a WIDE OPEN SCHEDULE so I'll ride with whomever whenever, provided nobody expects me to be a Gretchen Bleiler clone. (in looks or abilities)

well I have the A-Basin/Keystone one. But if other people have buddy passes to share I'll go elsewhere, and likewise if anyone wants to use one of my buddy passes.

Epic and Eldora.

Don't know where I'm more stoked for powder days... Vail or eldo.... Upslope! Upslope! Upslope!

Just a shameless plug for eldo where I volunteer as a ski patroller, it a fun little mountain. We had a wicked season last year, great snow!

Anybody else riding the front range?

What was this business about Loveland one-day tix only being $20 or something a few days back??? Is this still in effect?

that was the "I ski with KBCO" deal. They will do other deals through out the season. Some other radio station has a $15 dollar day once a month @ Loveland.

4 packs are $109, ending at 5pm today at Larson's Ski and Sport, Wheat Ridge (I-70 and Kipling).

As stated, the cheap weekdays are sponsored by radio stations, and someone generally posts a meetup here when those are happening.

Breck was crowded saturday afternoon, Icy, scraped off, and chopped up. ppl started clearing out around 2:45 though:P

Today, runs were groomed nicely this morning and the ungroomed runs were wind blown and sorta soft.

supper windy up top both days. T-bar looked cold cold. Need some fresh stuff but good warm-up

Watchout out for the holiday crowd....my 10 year old got mowed down by a 6'4 late 20's moron today at full speed and mid air jump. they were both hitting the same jump from different directions. After being hit, my son was slammed into a water valve that was luckily covered in the padding. they were both lucky to slide away. the hit was comparible to a nfl highlight film. :rolleyes:

11 days. 6 more coming this week at Keystone. :D


I usually ride the Vail conglomerate, but only cause I teach at Keystone. I'm down to ride whenever, and am not above swapping buddy passes to ski outside the Vail network.

:flipoff2:


My report... Abasin was sweet this last week, with west wall opening mid-week, and after that storm, calf to thigh-deep powder along the trees and eastern exposures. Vail's opening day was a madhouse at the base, but with the amount of terrain that's open (most of the front), it was easy to get away from the crowds. Couple of back bowls are open. Yesterday and today were great, with mild lift-lines. Keystone opened the Outback over the weekend, and a couple instructor friends said it was pretty good.

If you're going to ski this coming week, do it before wednesday. If you can't do that... Well, be prepared to sit in lines, and to have busy slopes. That means BE CAREFUL. I've already seen too many people carted off the mountain this year, and after talking to a Vail patroller today, have gotten the impression that due to the early-season snow, many people are hitting it as if its mid-january meaning that they are skiing outside their level for this early in the season, based on the great snow conditions. The slopes will be busy this week/weekend. No question about that.
